Driven2SaveLives BC39: Midget Racing Extravaganza at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

At the sixth Driven2SaveLives BC39 major event, 72 great drivers will race against each other for one of 24 spots. From September 27–30, this exciting event will take place at The Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

This year, the most cars are at the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship BC39. The winner of the 39-lap primary race on Saturday night will get $20,039.

BC39 beat USAC NOS Energy Drink 19 times. These experienced racers come from twenty states in the United States. Indiana is second with thirteen drivers, and California is close behind with fifteen.

Two of the winners of the first four BC39 events make this midget racing show even better. In 2018, the winner was Brady Bacon from Oklahoma. In 2022, the winner will be Buddy Kofoid from California. Kofoid will miss the showdown on Saturday night because he has to race, so Bacon is the only one who can win a second BC39 title.

Five of these drivers have won at least ten prominent events in the USAC National Midget series. Tanner Thorson has the most wins with 29. Kofoid, Jerry Coons Jr., Justin Grant, and Logan Seavey all have 14 wins.

This year’s event, which takes place over four exciting nights, moves to the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Turn 3 quarter-mile dirt track. A new idea for splitting the night will be shown on Thursday, September 28 and Friday, September 29.

On September 27, all cars will practice at the track to prepare for the 25-lap Stoops Pursuit race, split into five-lap sprints. After each section, any vehicles that lose their place will be taken off the road quickly. This hard race will have 24 drivers, including the top ten winners in the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship points and the ten fastest drivers from Wednesday night’s practice sessions. When four more producers join the fight, it will get more challenging.

After the show on Wednesday, all competing cars will race on Thursday or Friday night to prepare for the big event on Saturday night. There will be practice, heat, and qualifying races on both preliminary nights. Based on the results of the practice races, the C-Main (if needed), semi-feature, and final 30-lap feature event will be set.

The top three winners from each qualifying night move on to the 39-lap, $20,039-to-win grand finale on Saturday, September 30. This is a critical point in the race. Finalists will be placed in the E-, D-, C-, and B-Main lines based on how well they did in the opening nights.

Logan Seavey from Sutter, California, is the favourite to win his first BC39 race in this exciting event. Seavey, who drives the No. 57 Abacus Racing car, comes into the race confidently because he has won six main events in the last fourteen races. In USAC National Midget races, Jason Leffler is the only other driver to have 14 straight top-five finishes. In 1997, Leffler had 21 linear top-five results. Seavey won all the USAC Division of the 4-Crown Nationals races at Eldora Speedway. This showed that he was a top driver. He and, Kyle Larson and Jack Hewitt help him reach this goal.

This season, the big names from NASCAR and the NTT INDYCAR SERIES may not be at BC39. Still, fans of Indianapolis Motor Speedway will know a word. Brownsburg, Indiana’s Adam Andretti will drive the No. 44 car. Adam Andretti is the younger brother of John Andretti, who won the USAC National Midget Rookie of the Year award in 1983. Aldo Andretti and Mario Andretti, who won the Indianapolis 500 in 1969 and the Formula One World Championship in 1978, are both in his family.

The event also celebrates Bryan Clauson, who has started the Indianapolis 500 three times and won the USAC. It works hard to get people involved in the Indiana Donor Network and Driven2SaveLives.

On all four exciting days, the public gates will open at 4 p.m. ET when the sun sets over Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Wednesday’s practice starts at 6 p.m., while hot laps on Thursday and Friday begin at 6:30 p.m. At 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, the 39-lap grand crescendo feature race will light up the night sky.
